The Shahrixonsoy was built in 1887. In the years 1939–1941 he was drafted into the system of the newly built Ferghana canals. From 1976 renovation work was carried out.
The Shahrixonsoy is derived from the Qoradaryo to the left at the foot of the Andijon Dam dam . After 1 km are on a barrage of Andijonsoy and another channel branched off from him. In its course to the west, the Shahrixonsoy forms the border between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan for about 20 km until it flows through between the cities of Karasuu (Kyrgyzstan) and Qorasuv (Uzbekistan). In the further course through the Uzbek province Andijon it passes among other things the cities Qoʻrgʻontepa , Xoʻjaobod , Asaka and flows from the left into the Great Ferghana Canal near Shahrixon . The canal also takes its name from this point.
Other channels branch off from the Shahrixonsoy, including the Southern Ferghana Canal .
